Luxury, as a concept, seems inherently rooted in materialism. It involves the owning of beautiful, often superfluous things.
In a world where natural resources are declining, and over-consumption is harming our environment, it may be possible to move towards a more meaningful definition of luxury.
Today's luxury is about rediscovering an immaterial dimension - time, space, and experiences.
Time and travel, which seem very precious today, were pivotal in the evolution of luxury. Since Antiquity, contact with other nations fuelled a desire for rare and exotic items. When the West discovered Japanese ceramics for example, it realized that luxury and refinement could co-exist with simplicity and purity.
There is a shift from ownership to only using things that have personal value. You will have nice, well-made objects around you to enhance the things which are important to you, such as a beautiful set of crockery for someone who loves cooking for friends.
In a decisive move away from disposable culture, the longevity of luxury items is becoming an important part of their appeal.
